BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – The third annual “Kids vs. Cops” basketball game ended in a tie and raised over $800 for honor students headed to Washington D.C. in the spring of 2018.

Titusville Police Officers took on Andrew Jackson Middle School’s Generals Basketball team on Tuesday November night in the much anticipated charity event that helps generate funding for students traveling to the nation’s capital.

Both teams split wins over the past two years, making this game a rubber match of sorts.

This year’s game would prove which team had the most dominate basketball skills with the winner earning bragging rights for the rest of the year.

It was certainly a close game, and strong defensive play made scoring difficult in the contest.

At halftime, the Generals held a six point lead, but that quickly changed as the police officers rallied in the last few seconds of the game to tie the score. After the game, the Titusville Police and Generals each have a win and now also a tie.
